PakSense Launches AutoSense Facility Monitoring
- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
CHICAGO, IL - PakSense, Inc., provider of continuous environmental monitoring solutions, is unveiling its new AutoSense Facility Monitoring, launched in conjunction with PakSense strategic partner Controlant. This system monitors temperatures in stationary areas such as storage and processing facilities, walk-in coolers and freezers, and cold cases, according to a press release. The wireless system uses gateways that connect to the Cloud using cellular connectivity.
“There is minimal impact on existing networks with this drop-in cellular system,” said David Oster, CEO at PakSense. “AutoSense Facility also proactively alerts users of temperature excursions via email or text and provides automated compliance reporting."
Additionally, PakSense’s AutoSense Facility Monitoring has also been named a finalist for the United Fresh 2015 New Product Awards for Best New Food Safety Solution.
This new innovation utilizes fixed wireless (RF 915MHz) sensors that communicate continuously with a gateway ensuring that all data is uploaded to the centralized cloud database where proactive out-of-range alerts and reports are automatically generated and delivered.
All gateways include a 10-hour battery backup that keeps the system live in the event of a power failure, as part of the self-auditing watchdog system. In addition, the system is extensible and easily upgraded and the same gateways used in facility monitoring can be leveraged as part of an outbound temperature monitoring program providing continuous visibility within the supply chain.
